Summary

Summary

When The Diva, Bams, and Cass looked around for reviews that reflected their own experience and found hardly any, they decided to take matters into their own hands, to let Hollywood know that Blacks spend money on movies beyond Boyz 'N the Hood wannabees.Whether they are reviewing the blockbusters, "Flicks That Made Bank," or the films with Black Oscar nominees, 3 Black Chicks Review Flicks is a peerless and hilarious source of film criticism and movie trivia. Before you rent your next video or buy a new DVD, check out what they have to say on:Monster's Ball Like it or not, Berry was beautiful without meaning to be, vulnerable without trickery, emotive without melodrama. And that Billy Bob fella wasn't half bad himself.The Green Mile "Magical Negro Alert!" At the onset, it appears as if this is yet another movie about a white savior of a Black man. I saw it as the exact opposite... They don't get much better than this.All About Eve Eve wasn't doing anything that a good ass kicking wouldn't fix -- it should have been called "All About a Beat Down."...It's the perfect movie to put on one Saturday afternoon.Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory Willy Wonka is 60 percent Ghettofabulous, 55 percent psychedelic, 20 percent Pythonesque...and 100 percent good.

Publisher's Weekly Review

More Than "Two Thumbs Up" Countering that there are not enough nationally known black movie reviewers, The Diva, Bams and Cass formed their own critics' circle, 3 Black Chicks. They've gathered their reviews of "chick flicks," "late-night booty-call flicks," "movies that just plain suck" and other films in 3 Black Chicks Review Flicks: Movie Reviews With Flava! The women have unique criteria for judging a movie, among them "the Black Factor" (the presence or absence of black cast and crew members) and "the Brotha Rule" (which often applies to action films, where a black character sacrifices himself for the life of a Caucasian main character). Each entry takes up less than a page, culminating in a rating somewhere between red light (meaning "I don't think so!") and green light ("What are you waiting for?"). It's a unique and refreshing way of looking at films that should appeal to all moviegoers. (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
